The Dodgers have announced today they are placing pitcher Clayton Kershaw on the 10-Day IL with forearm inflammation and recalling pitcher Mitchell White.
Dodgers as of right now only have three active, healthy starting pitchers: Walker Buehler, Julio Urias, and Tony Gonsolin.
Kershaw is on the 10-day IL, Dustin May is on the 60-day IL after having Tommy John surgery and Trevor Bauer is on administrative leave.
The Dodgers have only a few games left before the All-Star Break. With the trade deadline fast approaching, we will see if Andrew Friedman decides to make a move.
The future Hall of Famer is coming off a start in which he lasted just 4 innings against the Nationals, but was only removed because of a lengthy rain delay in Washington.
Kershaw was 9-7 on the year with a 3.39 ERA and 0.98 WHIP. He had 127 strikeouts compared to just 19 walks in 106.1 innings.
The 33-year-old ranked third in the National League in wins, ninth innings pitched, ninth in strikeouts, and tenth in WHIP.
For his career, Kershaw is just 16 wins shy of 200, and 327 strikeouts shy of 3,000. Only 18 other pitchers in MLB history have joined the 3,000-strikeout club.
